Betting odds to win the Stanley Cup have changed drastically since the season began as teams have shifted based on play. The Columbus Blue Jackets have struggled to begin the season, and their odds have continued to tumble as the season has gone on.

Here is a look at the updated betting odds to win the 2021 Stanley Cup as of March 6, 2021. 

Favorites

Toronto Maple Leafs +550

Tampa Bay Lightning +650

Colorado Avalanche +700

Vegas Golden Knights +800

The Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights were the clear favorites to win the Stanley Cup to begin the season, but that is no longer the case. Both of those teams are having solid seasons, but COVID-19 has affected each of those teams. 

With a terrific start to the 2020-21 season, the Toronto Maple Leafs are now the favorites to win the 2021 Stanley Cup, but these odds can once again change in a hurry. The Tampa Bay Lightning are second on the list at +650, and they are the defending Stanley Cup champions. 

Winning the Stanley Cup is one of the toughest things to do in sports, and that should make for a terrific playoff when they are set to begin. 

Contenders

Carolina Hurricanes +1100

Boston Bruins +1200

Edmonton Oilers +1400

Minnesota Wild +1800

Philadelphia Flyers +2000

Florida Panthers +2000

Montreal Canadiens +2200

New York Islanders +2400

Winnipeg Jets +2400

Washington Capitals +2400

St. Louis Blues +2500

Pittsburgh Penguins +3000

Chicago Blackhawks +4000

Since winning the Stanley Cup is so difficult, there is a long list of contenders at this time of the year. The Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues are two of the most notable teams on the list, but any one of these teams could win the Stanley Cup this season. 

Longshots

Dallas Stars +5000

Calgary Flames +5000

New York Rangers +8000

Arizona Coyotes +8000

Columbus Blue Jackets +8000

Los Angeles Kings +8000

Nashville Predators +8000

Unfortunately, you will find the Columbus Blue Jackets in this list of longshots, and it has been a rough year for the team. There are also some interesting teams on this list, including the Dallas Stars.

Dallas was in the Stanley Cup Finals a season ago, but the Stars have been hit hard by COVID-19. These teams, including the Blue Jackets, could make a run, but they are running out of time. 

Better Luck Next Year

Vancouver Canucks +10000

New Jersey Devils +10000

Anaheim Ducks +15000

San Jose Sharks +15000

Buffalo Sabres +17500

Ottawa Senators +30000

Detroit Red Wings +50000

If you are a fan of any of the teams in this group, then you might want to start to focus on the future. These teams will all struggle to reach the playoffs, and the Stanley Cup is not in the cards this year.
